Day 1 Arrive Koh Samui

Arrive to the stunning east coast of Thailand and Koh Samui. Known for its idyllic beaches, coconut trees and water sports, this area has something for everyone. The island itself is a mix of dense tropical jungle and long winding coastline. On arrival to the airport you are met and drive to your hotel for check-in. The rest of the day is free to explore at your new surroundings at your leisure.

Day 2 Anthong Marine Park Kayaking

Today set out for a full day kayaking trip to nearby Angthong Marine Park, a protected archipelago of about 42 tropical islands, most of which are undeveloped and uninhabited. Depart early from Nathon Pier for a two hour boat ride to the reserve, enjoying a light breakfast en route. Start your first kayak along the island of Koh Mae. Land your kayaks on the beach and take short climb through dense tropical forest to arrive to the viewpoint of Green Lagoon, also known as Emerald Lake. Return to the boat for lunch on board as you travel further north in the Marine Park. After lunch set out for your afternoon kayak exploring small caves, lakes and beach along Koh Thai Plao. Snorkeling is also possible in this area if you feel ready for a dip! Depart later this afternoon for the return to Koh Samui.

Day 3 Snorkel Koh Tao & Koh Nang Yuan

Today you head by speedboat an hour and half to a diving and snorkeling paradise located 70 km north of Samui. These waters offer the best underwater visibility in the Gulf of Thailand and are home to various coral species and abundant tropical marine life. Stop first at the snorkel point in Koh Nang Yuan, a beautiful white sand beach bar that stretches across three small islands. Upon arrival hop in for a fantastic introduction to the underwater world. Next you visit Koh Tao and other snorkeling sites around its coastlines. Later this afternoon head back to Koh Samui and arrive early evening.

Day 4 Free Day Koh Samui

Enjoy a free day to do as you like on Koh Samui. You may opt to just relax and enjoy the beach today. For those desiring more activity, you may arrange for a variety of excursions including sunset cruise to Koh Phangan, another day in Anthong Marine Park, or hike to Namuang Waterfall. Or opt to tour some of the island attractions including the Big Buddha and Wat Plai Laem on the northern coast, hike to Namuang Waterfall, or visit the mummified remains of the monk Luang Pordaeng. The day is yours to do as you like.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
